It was con aridcrably after midnight when the board of health office was closed for a Aw hours, and the tired physicians went home to snatch a few hours of est. Up to that time, although the widest publicity had been given to the Celpi case, and the desire of the board was known that very suspicious case should be promptly reported, no news was received at the office to lead to the belief that there exists a single case of yellow fever in New Orleans. Dr. H. A. GanL, of Water Valley, of the state board of health, has taken charge of the situation at Ocean Springs, and will spare neither pains nor money in an effort to stamp out the fever. He is of the opinion that, with care and good management, this can be done in a few days. All houses where...

JOPKINS' MISTAKE. t Him a Sew Dress nd a Pretty Bob art. Jopkins had read somewhere that if woman got hold of a newspaper with a clipping cut out of it, she would never rest until she had procured a complete paper and read the missing Item. This struck Jopkins as a very shrewd and Machiavelian plan of ex posing this well-known weakness of lovely woman, and he resolved to put It into practice. So that night, when he went home from the office, there ostentatiously protruded from his coat pocket the day's paper, from which he had neatly cut a paragraph referring- to the rings of Jupiter or some such matter. He threw the paper to one side in a careless way, and after supper he noted with an unholy glee that Mrs. Jopkin had secured it. and was running her eye over the bargain ads, and work ing her way, after the niai-ner of her Bex, through the personals, marriage notices, and back to the telegraphic dispatches. Presently Jopkins observed i sudden nnd suspicious frown overcast her face. ...
